I think thats what its called, the nut for the front end of the rear lower control arm. Some how I busted off the metal 'flag' that keeps it from spinning. I would like to replace it, anyone know where I can find one, cheap

A cam bolt? Flat on one side? I got rid of mine. Just have a regular bolt in.

Only place I have seen them is dealer. You could tack weld a flag on but have to be careful not to warp nut

What's wrong with a regular nut, used in conjunction with a wrench while tightening and loosening... ala Old School? The only reason for the flag is to reduce the time that the UAW folks spend on each nut during assembly.
I normally just cuss at them and when I finally get the rusted bugger off; replace them with a nut and anti-seize, usually with a lock washer (not a fan of locktite on most nuts).

Having retired from industry; most changes are cost reduction (profit) driven not a matter of quality or function...

Enjoy!
